Happy November Challenge Declutter-ers! - Page 10

post #181 of 193
I'm really late to the game. What's a realistic goal for 2 days?
post #182 of 193
I think I"ve met my goal of 100, but have lost count. Everytime I clean now, I pitch something. I even went through my recipe box and pitched recipes I've never used. They were just taking up space and making it hard for me to find the recipes I do use.

Definitely not going to make my quota for this month. Things have gotten too crazy. I may get a few more things out but I did well over 100 in 1/2 the month but nowhere near the 250 mark. More disciplined next month!!!

Congrats to all who made their quotas!!!! and on to December!!!!!! We will set up another challenge for December??? I hope!

I'm certain I've met mine, and exceeded!! Well, assuming I take everything (5-6 bags in addition to what I've freecycled) to the thrift store and Goodwill today. We're even recycling two computers!

I got some stuff done yesterday, 36 in all, including:

many random receipts and pieces of junk lying around, mail piles, 4 piles of shredding, an old box, old pantry items, another magazine and 2 used up candles.

428/500. Less than 75 to go.

I'm pretty sure I'm going to do a huge pantry purge. I've got a lot of stuff that's been open for a long time, I'm just on the fence about what to toss (seems like throwing away good money. but then again, if i had been thinking when i bought the stuff, i'd have made more responsible purchases).

More for me today!

I cleaned out DD's random stuff bin:
Recycled a bunch of paper shreds (her "money" )
tossed 2 questionable rubber ball things
returned several bowls to the kitchen (not counting these!)
tossed an icky book bug thing

I'll just call that 3.

Gotta run... I'll post more later

I found 2 rotting apples, a rotting cucumber, 5 containers of festering leftovers and 6 old make up thingies. 501/500!!!

OK, so what's the deal for December?

Ok, in these last 2 days - mostly today - I've managed:
  • Decluttered at least 30 plastic bags - I use cloth, but DH doesn't
  • I brought in 2 small bins for recycling so -2
  • 7 or so magazines went in the recycling bin and I've emailed each company to get them to stop sending them
  • sold 4 skeins of yarn, 1 shirt, and 1 cd drive - will ship tomorrow

43 items -2 for bins = 41 items
